Just broke open Mad Max (1979) Collector's edition Blu-Ray.
For me, this movie still holds up as a groundbreaking piece of cinema. And one of it's brilliant qualities, is many of us remember the movie showing much more violence than it actually does. In fact, almost every violent act happens *offscreen*. It happens in our minds. Like older classic thrillers and horror.
And like some of the best of those, Mad Max remains fresh. It put Australian cinema on the map. And now finally, we get to see it with the original Australian voices on it.
The special features on this BD, including some some great documentary featurettes on the making of the film, interviews with some of the filmmakers, and a great commentary with DP David Eggby, Art Director, John Dowding,
